Hallel Yaffa Ariel was asleep in her bed this morning, when an Arab terrorist broke into her room and stabbed her to death. Halel was thirteen years old. She was sleeping in because it is summer vacation and she didn’t have to go to school. He, the Arab who murdered her, was breaking into a bedroom to murder a little Jewish girl because it is Ramadan, and he was taught that Jews are lower than animals and that they must be murdered wherever they are found.
Even little girls asleep in their beds during summer vacation.
If the mainstream media reports this, they will concentrate heavily on the fact that Hallel lived in Kiryat Arba, which they will call a “settlement.” As if it were some sort of crime for a Jew to build a home in the place where our forefather Abraham purchased a gravesite for our matriarch Sarah. As if a thirteen year old girl is somehow a criminal because she sleeps in a home her parents purchased, located on real estate Arabs covet.
Or they will report the event completely sterile of all context. They will say a stabbing occurred and that there are two dead and one injured. They won’t tell you that the Arab was the stabber and one of the dead.
The State Department, if it mentions the incident at all, will ask “both sides to refrain from perpetuating the cycle of violence,” to suggest two kids having a squabble in the sandbox, instead of the cowardly murder of a little girl by an Arab terrorist who thinks his God commands him to murder Jews, even when they are little girls asleep in their beds.
As for me? I am closing my windows and doors, even though it is a hot day and my apartment is not air-conditioned. I will sweat and imagine I am somehow safe inside my home in Efrat, in the Judean Wilderness, a place where, according to the Obama Administration, I have no right to live. Because Arabs want this land. And they want it Judenrein.
A little girl was sound asleep in her bed this morning. Now she is dead. And in Arab villages, they are giving out candy. Because one of the Yahud is now dead and this is a victory for them. And the world will look the other way.
Because to them, a little Jewish girl asleep in her bed on land that belonged to her forefathers, is a provocation that perpetuates the cycle of violence.
And they do not approve.
